Too bad we're getting almost no new C++11 language features with VC11. VC10 already had auto and lambdas, but all that VC11 adds is scoped enums. No variadic templates, no ranged for-loop, no constexpr, no uniform initialization or initializer lists... it's amajor disappointment.

(Note that I said language features; we are getting pretty much all of the C++11 std library, including <thread> and <atomic>, which is good).

I remember hearing from one of STL's videos that the next version of VS would have veridic templates. Are you sure it's not just arriving in a later build?
